Working within the printer file report

In the report generated through printer file, we want to increase the size of one field onto the report in particular. The report already is being printed in condensed mode, so changing CPI at printer will not work. Keyword FONT in DDS is not working.
The FONT Keyword only works for AFPDS files. In the old days, we created multiple line characters using hex codes, but I'm not sure that even works any longer. The other way is to set an indicator to change the font on a specific field. Check the DDS manual for the CPI keyword. You can find the details here.
